Our annual Costume Fundraiser begins September the 9th. This fundraiser has become a staple at Ballerinas, enabling several dance families to greatly decrease the amount owed for Spring Performance costumes. We encourage any who have not tried it yet and new students to give it a go. The product is REALLY GOOD. Several parents have yearly, returning customers. The profit that you receive from what you sell is 35%. The studio keeps 5% and the rest pays for the product. It truly is a fundraiser to benefit YOU. All costume money is due December the 1st, so you will be glad to have a creditJ Credit can be applied to costumes, Tremaine tuition and any other dance fees.
You can now purchase dancewear from Re:flexion Dancewear right here at our studio. We can size your child for ballet and tap shoes and by ordering your tights and shoes at the studio, you can always be assured of having the correct colors for our 2 annual performances. There are leotards available as well. So ask your teacher to fit your child right here at the studio, when it comes time for new shoes!!!
Beef and Boards Children’s Theater production of Winnie The Pooh is coming up soon. The show date is Saturday November the 2nd at 1:00. Tickets are $10 per seat, young or oldJ.
